A SKIMS customer filed a complaint and lawsuit against Kim Kardashian’s company, claiming that their body tape caused her physical and mental distress.
Noelle Mahasin Smith is suing SKIMS for not making the body tape as safe as “technologically and economically feasible,” according to court records obtained by Radar Online.
According to the complaint, SKIMS is also to blame for “the pain.”
Smith claims that SKIMS’ tape cut her flesh and that the company did not properly design the tape and used the wrong materials.
According to the court documents, Kim Kardashian’s shapewear brand tested the body tape to ensure that what clients use is safe.
The complainant said that SKIMS refused to warn the public about the “hazardous body tape,” instead continuing to sell it.
Smith allegedly suffered emotional and physical pain due to the contentious footage damaging her skin. She holds the corporation responsible for her anguish and incompetence.
Smith allegedly sought more than $75,000 in damages and stated that she would continue to suffer due to the medical care costs in the coming years.
As of this writing, the tape is not yet available on the website.
Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, may be safe.
According to a SKIMS representative who spoke with Radar, the buyer ordered a “fake tape” from Amazon. This merchant was not a licensed or authorized retailer of their merchandise.
“Unfortunately, counterfeit items have become typical for the brand, and we strongly urge our clients to only buy from SKIMS.com or any of our legitimate retail partners listed on our website to guarantee that they receive products that exceed our quality requirements.”
Kim Kardashian’s divisive SKIMS tape, also known as the Tonal Body Tape & Pasties, made headlines in 2019, with several well-known influencers wearing it on social media.
Previously, women used duct tape, masking tape, and other types of tape to achieve the perfect cleavage.
Kim continued to suffer despite the burns and rips she had received. She might find her solution after a few years.
According to the company, the body tape is designed with a tiny stretch to move with the body and provide maximum support.
Not only did the product receive positive feedback from influencers, but also regular ladies. A roll of tape is said to last a long time and is available in various skin tone colors.
